More About the Author

I am proud of the work I have done as a photographer, author, naturalist and nature photographer, editor and videographer. I love the natural world, and that can be a native bee in my native plants garden as much as a visit to a national park. I am a husband of a beautiful and smart wife, a father to my outstanding son and daughter, and one who lived in Minnesota most of my life, but now loves the variety and very long growing season of Southern California.

I have written and photographed a lot of books and magazine articles but what is most important to me about them is knowing that I have helped people become better photographers and gain a better connection to nature. I work to help people connect with photography and nature through speaking and as a workshop leader, too. All of this has gained me a Fellow award with the North American Nature Photography Association. Many people knew me as the long-time editor of Outdoor Photographer magazine and I am still connected with them as a contributing editor.

A short list of some of the books I have done: Landscape Photography: From Snapshot to Great Shot, Magic of Digital Landscape Photography, The Magic of Digital Nature Photography, National Geographic Field Guide to Digital Photography, The Power of Black-and-White in Nature Photography and Reports from the Field (an iBook).

I work daily with the full Photoshop program, and have used it for over ten years, but I recently bought Elements 9 so I could provide phone help to clients and friends who have taken my advice to buy the less expensive version of the software. While some aspects Elements and the full-blown program are similar, there's enough of a difference to bog down the process of editing photos if you don't know your way around the interface.

The Top 100 Simplified Tips and Tricks book is an ideal solution for learning the Elements 9 interface, as well as features and limitations of the program. For anyone who's impatient to get started, who likes to jump right in play with a program (and ask questions later), or who simply needs a refresher on Elements, this is your book. It's the perfect first book if you're new to image editing and don't want to trod through chapter-long tutorials. Each topic is split into a bite-sized two-page explanation, with excellent photos and illustrations, and well-written text.

It's easy to hop around the book from subject to subject, skipping the parts that don't apply to you, and finding the answers you're looking for. After you've read a tip, you're armed with the terminology that you need to search online for more in-depth articles if you so desire. This is immensely helpful, because Google can prove to be worthless if you don't know the exact terms that you need to solve your problem.

If you haven't purchased the software yet (or if you're debating between Elements and Photoshop CS-whatever, or any other image editing programs), I'd highly recommend Elements.

The 100 tutorials covered in this book are excellent for newcomers and experts using Elements 9. This will save considerable time and frustration for beginners because it covers 75% or more of the information a novice will need to get started with Elements. For experts, it will provide a quick review of seldom used features of Elements 9. Great value for content and price.

What's not to like about this guide? It uses color and photos with explanations for every step of every process in the learning. Anyone can learn Photoshop with a guide like this. Now, this particular book covers the Top 100 Tips & Tricks of using PS. Since my job entails taking a lot of photos, and accepting the photos submitted by others, I want to know the best ways to organize, sharpen images to the extent they can be, and all the best ways to handle what I have to work with. But work isn't the only function it serves. The software, and therefore the 100 top tricks too, have become an invaluable tool for ALL my photo work. When I send my family pictures that I know will interest them, I want to be certain that what I send looks professional.

I finally broke down and upgraded from Photoshop CS2. No, I did NOT need CS5 and all the assundry bells and whistles that CS5 provides. PSE9 is pretty much all the prosumer photographer needs. And with that it is NOT easy to learn and has so many features that it is impossible to learn through the Adobe Tutorials or lessons. If you are going to read those and go through the lessons by Adobe you are in for a rough flight!

Rob has gone through and identified the most important features of PSE9 and what the prosumer needs and gives you steps on how to accomplish those tasks. Upon getting the trial version, I hated the organizer as I could not figure it out. After reading Rob's tips on how to use it, I am lovin' it and it is because I know how to use the Organizer. Now it is time to enhance and perfect my photographs and by categorizing them, I will only work on the ones that are worth it (5 star rating).

If you are going to buy 1 book on PSE9, this is the one. I don't have time to go through tutorial after tutorial to learn what I need to do (am a dad, a software engineer learning boatloads of new technologies, an avid cyclist with a number of events coming up) so this book is the ideal book for me. If you have lots of time to sit around and do tutorials, then one of the classroom in a book series might be nice (had that for CS2 and never had time for it).

Bottom line, this gives you the steps to perform the most essential tasks of PSE9 that will benefit your photography the most.

I've been trying to find a book on PS Elements 9 for a couple of my 12-14 year old grandkids starting out with photography. Most of the other books were too long and too complicated. This book is what I was looking for, with easy to understand directions and pictures of the software page you're dealing with for a particular task. It uses a step by step approach with minimal text and maximum pictures. I also know Rob Sheppard to be excellent from other photography books he has written. I Recommend this text highly.

I believe this book to be mistitled. Rather than a "Tips and Tricks" book, it should be titled, "A Logical way of using PE9".

The book guides you through using the software. It is more of a lesson book, explaining the interface and commands available in the software. There are instructions for some of the advanced commands found in the software, but I wouldn't call them "tricks". The book is helpful, though a bit dry. It would be best to read this book while using the software at the same time because the pics in the book are small and sometimes "crowded". That may also help break up the dryness of the book.
